    Sea kayaking off the Florida coast, playing my guitar (and listening to those more skilled at it than me), reading and maintaining a 40-year-old collection of pipes.

    Hobies......
    Married with Kids, need I say more?

    In my little freetime, you'll always catch me listening to Classic Rock, Whether offshore Fishing, Car, Home or wherever, Always helps clear my thoughts,
    Love Electronics, Computing, My iphone 4, Wife says play plenty of words with friends, keeps you sharp, so if anyone has this iphone app and enjoys scrabble, then hit me up screen name Casper64.
    Fishing/Boating of course, Live right on the Lake, Boat is in my Slip in the BackYard. Me and my two boys wife and daughters enjoy Salt Water inshore and offshore Fishing.
    Trap and Skeet, Enjoy taking my two daughters to the range, and always get a good laugh at the boys trying to impress them with their skills, of course my daughter have been shooting all their lives and ones a College student and the other graduates HS this year, I guess they have an unfair advantage.
    I Love reloading, For Rifle, Shotgun, Never much reloaded pistol, except for my .357 Maximum which shoots a 140gr 270 Hornady Interlock tip, Custom built with leopold scope, made for deer hunting, or competition shooting, and I love Precision shooting.
    Only Hunting I do now a days is a little Duck Hunting, Something about a Mallard flying overhead, looking back at me, and aggrevating me with his laughing like quacks just irritates the S*** out of me, and of course they all must die, according to Wildlife and Fisheries, it's a very slow process in killing them all, But they understand my mission.
    My Wife and I love to travel, was in Las Vegas the end of July and really enjoyed it, Will be in the Carribean the week before Christmas, I'm sure searching for Jimmy Buffett and knowing no matter what, it's 5'Oclock somewhere.
    I have an interest in Amateur Radios, for the sole purpose of communication while 100 miles offshore, when phones, Marine Radios etc become useless. I always have a big fear of breaking down or having a problem that far offshore, even though my boat is equipped with twins, and are maticulously kept up, Communication of some sort is useful.
    And of course my Pipe collection, in which I want to be as good with that hobby, and receive the benefits of smoking my pipe as my Paw,paw once did.

    Come on guys, you need to be posting up pics for us too.

    Pictures of my #2 Hobby, Family Taking the Top of that list,
    This is my Backyard into Lake Pontchartrain, approximately 5 Miles North of the Mississippi Sound and Gulf of Mexico Entrance. Pictured is Our WorldCat Catarmaran 250 Sports Fish with Twin 140 Zukes, both 4 Stroke engines, Fuel Capacity 100 Gallons each Tank, 200 Gallon Total, She's 26' LOA, and is sitting in a 35' Slip. Motors and Bow Pulpit take up approx 34' of the slip.

    This is a Picture of her "The Nauti Kitty" sitting on her Tri-Axle Trailer, Getting ready to be pulled to the shop for annual servicing, Pictured from the rear, with Twin 140 Suzuki Engines, Dive ladder, Basically the only way to board her from Land. It's hard to get an eye on her from this angle, But she sits appox 13' in the air out of the water, To give you an Idea, Most Tractor Trailers extend into the air approx 13'6".

    This Picture is of the Center Console, "The Helm" Dual Controlls, Power Steering etc, Behind that Tinted Glass Locked up is her Electronics package, Garmin, Fish Finder, Sounder, GPS, 3D with Fish Eye View, etc, along with a Marine Series Sony AM/FM/CD + MP3 Dock, Not Pictured, Directly Above The Helm, Is another Locked up Electronics Compartment, Housing her Marine Radios, Backup GPS unit, etc.

    In This Picture, Is Her sitting beside of my F-150 and in front of our 3 Story Home on the Lake, The Guys at work like this picture to give you a better idea of her size out of the water.

    This Picture is of me Hauling her to the Shop for her Annual Checkup, Most small repairs can be done in the slip, Although once a year, we take her out of the slip and take her to the shop for all Services, any additional add on's, and gives us a chance to inspect her hulls, replace any through Hulls, Bildge Pumps etc.

    These are just a few Pictures I had on my IPhone, I uploaded to Photobucket for show and tell,I usually don't get a lot of computer time at home with 4 Kids and a Wife on 2 Computers, and 1 being a laptop.

    I'm a car guy, I obsess about my next car purchase all the time. The next car I'm going to buy is probably going to be a Boxster S and then finding a Zeintec Hard Top for it (which may be close to impossible, since Zeintec has closed their doors).

    Back yard astronomy myself. Love spending the night out with a good pipe and my telescope.

    My major hobby, actually, is music. Have a nice amount of guitars, electric and acoustic, and two basses. And I am a bit of a computer geek, but not as much as I used to be.

    My guitar is my main hobby. It has taken me all over this country back in my younger days and has allowed me to meet some very fantastic people. Outside of that. I am told I am a jack of all trades.

    I have had numerous hobbies too many to mention, but I think i tried to get them to take the place of my guitar. At one point in time i blamed the guitar for a lot of stuff in my life.
    But as i get older, Fishing and Hunting are my mainstays, they help me to put food on the table, plus i get to get out and see what last bit of land God created that man hasnt messed up in some form or fashion.

    I am also a self taught Knife maker. I have my own shop, albeit a small one, my own forge and good steel as well as tons of RR Spikes.

    Ohhh My latest two hobbies i picked up at the same time, Pipes.....and well dont laugh...Yo-Yos lol.

    Scott . Some pictures of your knife work would rock. I do blacksmithing too. Finally am able to produce a decent pattern weld blade.

    If at first you don't succeed you are running about average.

    unclearthur, here is the very first knife i ever forged. Up to this point i had made 1 knife by stock removal. I then saved up and got my first forge off of ebay, and for an anvil i have a piece of railroad rail, that is welded to a steel frame for me to hammer on. I am learning as I go lol

    Very cool knife. Blacksmithing is on my list of things to do once I get 10+ hours of free time a day.

    Seriously, Mortgage underwriting is taking over my life. Working on a MBA and then a woodturning business all keep me from the important things in life.

    well i am in the process of getting an anvil....till i discovered the pipe lol. But there is one on a farm I used to haul grain from. I think the farmer said it was 150lber, and he said as far as he knew, his great grandfather is the one who acquired it. He wants a fair price for it, meaning hes not trying to get rich off of it, so eventually I will get the anvil. Plus its already bolted down to a huge piece of tree trunk and its just my height.

    Great looking knife! blade looks damascus even. Your skill really shows thru.

    I use to be into antique radios, repairing, finding old tubes. But I also have an "ex" and moved to an apartment. Could'nt have tubes and radios/parts filled from top to bottom, parted with it all. Also needed money at the time. But I still admire them and love watching the radio come to life with the glow and I kept my first radio and most rare tube. I could probably sell that tube and buy a Dunhill, lol. I wont. I like to ice-fish and military history. oh' yeah, I'm a hockey nut!

    There is a light that never goes out.

    wow, wait a minute, do you have a website for your flutes? I just discovered Native American Flute music and have started buying Scott August, and Coyote Oldman CD's. You've gotta post up some pics or links on your flutes.

    I'm a golfer, a watcher, a reader and a listener.
    When the weather is nice, I'm walking the fairway, or heading into the woods, depending on how my swing is holding up. I don't take golf too seriously, but I sure do enjoy it. It's my favorite pasttime. Nothing else comes close.
    What I watch:
    Sports -- baseball, football, hockey and, of course, golf. Classic movies and movies that should be considered classic.
    What I read:
    Political history, sports history, biographies and fiction (I'm currently into the Steig Larrson trilogy.
    What I listen to:
    Blues, real rock 'n' roll, country and western, big band and jazz (does it get any more eclectic?).
    And I love to cook -- indoors and on the Weber in the backyard.
    My favorite beverages are: a pale ale, authentic American lager, lemonade, Pepsi One and black coffee.
    I also enjoy (sometimes) yard work. Please don't tell my wife.

    I routinely honor bad books by reading them, paint some, garden, bicycle, barbecue (low and slow), and pick up and cellar Italian wines in a very offhand way. I have been known to play the accordion when nobody's around (with a wife and three kids that's not very often).

    So I shall make use of that conveniently placed bump above me.

    Hobbies... I have been animating for 2 or 3 years (click on my avatar for my youtube channel to see some short films)
    I really enjoy it.
    Also crafting, mostly with wood, right now I haven't made anything that's really worth posting.
    Music has gotten somewhat of my interest, I have played trumpet for 5 or 6 years and right now I'm practicing harmonica.
    I like to fiddle with electronics too, although I don't like how small and compact everything is getting lately, it makes it harder to fiddle with the stuff.

    Since the thread got refreshed, I thought I'd chime in as well.

    Aside from my briars, I am an avid rock climber. When I can't go outside, I usually spend 3-4 days a week in the climbing gym.
    On a more mellow note, I enjoy reading good books, playing board games with my wife and friends, a good glass of Scotch, writing, backpacking, hiking and the like.

    That sums it up.

    One of my other main hobbies apart from the Photography and camera collecting would have to be my bike. Had her for coming up close to a year and as the weather is starting to get a bit milder i'll definitely be on the hunt for that illusive perfect English biking road again.

    Here's some pics

    OH man I have had 3 VFR's. Are you a member of the VFR Discussion.com forum?

    Here are my former bikes:


    We converted one over to all CBR600 F4i bodywork with a new aluminum subframe I fabbed up and installed a Micron Titanium Ultralite(1 1/2 lbs.) muffler which can be heard here.

    It started out looking like this

    Ended up looking like this:

    This was my last one:

    Oh wow, those are nice. The NC30 is my first proper bike after a couple of years on 125's. Amazing bikes but am now after something a bit bigger when the money allows. There's not much out there at the moment around the 600cc size that is too different.
    I love the V4's and the sound they make is incredible. Am thinking about a Triumph Daytona 675, the 3 cylinder is just that little bit different enough

    By the way, how much of a pain in the butt are those white wheels to keep clean eh

    I got a new hobby -- making snuff from the various tobaccos lying around my house. I also decided against a hobby today, snus. This is of course after getting talked into to buying a bit to try yesterday by the 7/11 clerk. It tastes good and all, but I'd really rather put a bit of jerky up there -- it may sound weird but I've been doing it since I was a kid and got my first pack of big league chew jerky, though I've long since swapped to full pieces I just chew up a bit first.

    Sincerely,

    Yoru

    I guess my Hobby would be carving. I'm not overly experienced or talented.
    Just doodling with wood.
    I make tampers and pipe tools.... when the mood hits me.
    Here is one of my latest.
